Bacon Bloody Mary


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I know I've been enjoying relaxing at my parents house and catching up on some much needed sleep. I am also in full prep mode for New Years Eve, since I'll be hosting some friends in the city this weekend.


In anticipation of the big partying days ahead and the fact that I will be entertaining some friends in from out of town, I thought it might be fun to perfect a brunch-friendly cocktail to nurse us back to health.  What better way to do so than with a Bloody Mary?! Seri helped me out and shot this beauty for me to have it ready for you guys in time!


Here's what you need:

-vodka -tomato juice -tabasco -Worcestershire sauce -prepared horseradish -celery salt -fresh ground black pepper -salt -bacon -celery stalks -lemons -limes -ice -cocktail shaker


Here's what to do:

1) Start your bacon frying in a skillet.  Once fried to your desired crispiness,  stick onto a bamboo skewer and set aside for later use!


2) Place mixture of celery salt, fresh ground black pepper and salt on a flat plate.  Take a lime wedge and wet the rim of your glasses. Place wetted rim in spice mixture on plate, coating the rim.


3) Fill each newly rimmed glass with ice, about halfway. In cocktail shaker, add juice and rind of one lime wedge, one lemon wedge, 2 oz of vodka, 4 oz tomato juice, 2 tsp. horseradish, 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and one pinch each of celery salt, fresh ground black pepper and salt. 4) Also add ice to shaker, then cover and shake well, combining all ingredients. 5) Strain into each cocktail glass.  Should be enough for two bloodys, so mix again for more!


6) Garnish each glass with a celery stalk, bacon, and a lemon or lime wedge.


This beautiful, bacon-ey Bloody is the perfect hangover cure... and I will most certainly be serving it up to my friends on New Years Day after we party it up with the Ultimate New Years Eve Party in a Box. Today is the last day to order yours in time for your NYE Bash, so don't miss out!


Until next week... Happy New Year!
